Ep 14: Stop Surviving. Start Living.


When was the last time you heard yourself say, “Wow. How did it get to be December already?” In this week’s episode, I am inviting you to consider that it is time to stop surviving. No, I am not saying that surviving is bad; but I’m here to tell you that there is more to life when living fully in the now. This idea of moving beyond survival mode into living fully is the perfect way to kick off the new year for anyone who feels like they are “just getting through the day” between to-do lists, responsibilities, and day-to-day life.
